Jessica Alba Covers 'Self Magazine' February 2010

Jessica Alba Covers 'Self Magazine' February 2010

Jessica Alba looks adorable as ever in a DKNY cozy and Citizens of Humanity corduroys on the February 2010 cover of Self Magazine. Here are the fun facts the 28-year-old actress spilled:

On being a politician if she wasn’t an actress: “I used to think being a marine biologist would be the best thing ever, but now that I’ve grown up and seen things in the world, I think politics. Advocating and lobbying for certain issues would be a pretty interesting way to live your life… When I was in Washington, D.C., I got to meet Nancy Pelosi. She was so warm. I just grinned from ear to ear with my mouth open and my eyes bulging out of my head! Afterward, I called Cash and totally geeked out. I was beside myself. Tickled pink! The fact that a woman is speaker of the house? Oh, my God!”

On how she blows off steam: “Honor is the best cure for stress. When I spend time with her, I get instant perspective. I can be hard on myself if I don’t do everything perfectly. But now that I have her, there’s no time for that. I want to teach her that you can learn from your mistakes, and if you keep moving and stay positive and loving, everything will work out.”

On what she does in the Internet: “I’ve bought 70 percent of my house off CraigsList! I’ve found so many things: couches, tables, lamps. I love the idea of recycling furniture and there being a history there.”

On her marriage: “I love the way I feel after Cash and I wake up. Or talk on the phone. Everything! Every time I see him or talk to him, I fall in love with him all over again.”

On life in 10 years: “I’d love to be raising my kids on a farm in the South of France. My mother-in-law has lived there for more than 20 years, and she has a beautiful setup. I want to be able to allow Honor and my other kids, who I hope to be blessed with in the future, to maintain their innocence for as long as possible. There is so much time to be an adult.”

    YAWN. She’s still pretty and all but I’ve lost all interest. I have no idea why.

  • Deborah

    Not interested in alba any more. I don’t even know why, she is old news!

  • Pandora

    I think she looks really pretty and has a healthy vision as to what she wants her future to look like. As to buying most of her household stuff off of Craigslist…yeah, I bet! LOL


    She’s pretty and grounded in what she wants for her children. Hope all she dreams for her children come true.

  • CutieMcFreckles

    Give me a break…marine biologist and politician?? you fan-people actually take this garbage seriously?

  • Naima

    Thank you #7… This girl is so full of BS. Jessica Alba is known for being below average in the intelligence department, there’s a reason why no one takes her seriously as an actress. She can’t act and has no charisma yet she always tries to blame her ethnicity for lack of roles.

    She sounds so pretentious and pathetic trying to prove that she has a couple of brain cells. And how disgusting that you would buy used furniture from random people on craigs list and let your child roam around on dirty, used furniture. Who knows where that furniture has been , just another way to prove how dumb this girl is.

    When will the entertainment industry wake up and stop allowing talentless, self absorbed people like this to step into the limelight. There’s no real appreciation for true talent anymore, just show off your body, pretend that you care about social issues and make stupid statements.

So fall the phuck back and get yall lives in check! TH@NK YOUUU!!!!!1

    Maybe having a child has helped her to grow up a bit. I do like her but she has said some of THE dumbest things in interviews, contradicting herself and such, I don’t like to show much skin but she’ll be oiled up in a bikini on a magazine cover. I mean if that’s your hustle there’s no shame but don’t go out of the way to say how you don’t like to show your body and then most of your pictures your in a bikini or some sort of skin tight suit. I don’t know if she’s improved as an actress either, she is truly a monotone piece of wood on film, sorry. Hopefully she’s worked on that. Although I don’t know if that can be helped. Either you have it or you don’t. I’ve seen good actress in some of the biggest peices of garbage but that talent still comes out so I don’t think you can blame it on not having the right role. She does seem to have her priorities straight as far as her kid though. So that’s good. I hope she does better in her choice now.

  • sarah

    @#9 Perhaps you should learn how to speak english before you comment on all of the “jealous” people. Anywho she looks nice.

  • heck

    worst actress ever, always has empty blank stare

  • SubSub

    She’d be a great politician. Why? Because politicians are some of the stupidest people ever. They simply spew out their mouths whatever their writers & analysts tell them to. She’s dumb enough to be a politican, but she would need better acting skills. I use to think she was beautiful, but now she’s just average. And just about as bad an actress as the lovely Megan Fox.

  • hollywoodgossip

    she has baby face so cute.

  • meh

    So why become a scientist, educate yourself, if you can go into politics with your ignorance and meet “warm” people that make you smile?
    Why be informed and contribute something to the world, science, understanding of nature and biology and cure soem diseases if you can “go into politics”?
    How many more dumb girls walk around the streets of LA spreading their gospel of ignorance?

    Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi’s in-flight ‘food, booze’
    Speaker’s trips ‘are more about partying than anything else’

    Part of the tab for alcoholic drinks on a congressional trip arranged by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
    It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

    But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for “in-flight services” – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That’s almost $1,000 per week.

    Fed up with the condescending clowns in Congress? Send them a “pink slip!”

    Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel over that time.

    “Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. “And these documents suggest the Speaker’s congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else.”

    Pelosi, D-Calif., recently joined President Obama on a Judicial Watch list of Top 10 corrupt politicians because of her “sense of entitlement,” the group said.

    “Politicians believe laws and rules (even the U.S. Constitution) apply to the rest of us but not to them. Case in point: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her excessive and boorish demands for military travel. Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Pentagon in 2008 that suggest Pelosi has been treating the Air Force like her own personal airline,” the evaluation said.

    (Story continues below)

    And WND reported almost a year ago that Pelosi was shown to have been erratically canceling and rescheduling flights, as one would with an on-call taxi service.

    Do the tone-deaf lawmakers in D.C. make your blood boil? Read all about Washington and its politics of corruption in “Breach of Trust.”

    “We have … folks prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some), cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc,” said one Department of Defense e-mail then.

    Another official sent an e-mail questioning a series of Pelosi’s requests for aircraft.

    “Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi's team] if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every weekend?” it stated. “[T]here’s no need to block every weekend ‘just in case’…”

    The e-mail noted that the speaker’s office had “a history of canceling many of their past requests.”

    Yet another e-mail exchange at that time revealed Pelosi’s demand that jets pick her up at Travis Air Force Base rather than San Francisco’s airport.

    “She lives about 1.5 hours from SFO and much closer to Travis. … Whether it is the best use of assets is not the question. But instead is it worth upsetting the speaker. …”

    Said another, “This is a battle that we are bound to lose if we tell the speaker(‘s) office. In the end, this is what will happen. I wish that I could say this is a one-time request, but we know it will probably happen again in the future.”

    Yet another indicated a deep level of frustration:

    “Here is the laydown: there are five G5s. Two are broke. Two off on CODELS. One slated for priority White House… we should keep on G-III for now for Tuesday afternoon and start sacrificing goats and chickens.”

    Judicial Watch said the newly obtained 2,000 pages of documentation show Pelosi’s military travel cost the U.S. Air Force $2,100,744.59 over two years – including $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

    Among the newest highlights revealed:

    Pelosi used Air Force aircraft to travel back to her district at an average cost of $28,210.51 per flight. Of 103 Pelosi-led congressional delegations (CODEL), 31 trips included members of the House speaker’s family.

    One CODEL traveling from Washington, D.C., through Tel Aviv, Israel, to Baghdad, Iraq, May 15-20, 2008, “to discuss matters of mutual concern with government leaders” included members of Congress and their spouses and cost $17,931 per hour in aircraft alone. This flight included the purchase of the long list of alcoholic drinks.

    According to a “Memo for Record” from a March 29-April 7, 2007, CODEL that involved a stop in Israel, “CODEL could only bring kosher items into the hotel. Kosher alcohol for mixing beverages in the delegation room was purchased on the local economy i.e. bourbon, whiskey, scotch, vodka, gin, triple sec, tequila, etc.
    Pelosi’s office could not be reached for comment. The answering machine said the office would be closed until Monday, and the mailbox was full, so no messages could be left.

    Judicial Watch Inc. describes itself as a constitutionally conservative, nonpartisan educational foundation that promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law.
